Re: Anyone uses FICO Score Watch/Quarterly Monitoring?

Thanks for the heads up everyone. I guess I'll pull the trigger on SW then. I'm currently awaiting my WalMart card for the TU FICO goodness, and I am using the AMEX CS for alerts (which I believe is identical to USAA's service).

 

I was on the fence about going the DCU route for EQ FICO, but I'm liking the sound of adjusting the alert settings for score updates on SW. It will also save me two HPs...

Re: Anyone uses FICO Score Watch/Quarterly Monitoring?

In rebuilding stage post bankruptcy and have both SW & QM. I find them both very help. If you are learning about how certain actions reflect your score the stimulators have been on the money for me.it taught me how to manage my utilization and after completing GW letters or disputes, it shows me how it affects my score immediately, and I receive immediate alerts by text and email. I totally love the alert settings. I set the alert at a goal and love when I met my score goals. Pretty cool!

Re: Anyone uses FICO Score Watch/Quarterly Monitoring?

I used both services from when I registered with myFICO until a few months after I purchased my home...I found them useful but once I closed I found I had no use for them anymore....I will probably pick back up the SW after the holidays. The TU quarterly monitoring gets trumped by the walmart TU FICO IMO.
